ParentPay is an online system that allows you to make payments 24/7 for a variety of purposes, including school dinners, trips, and after-school clubs.

Getting Started

The school office will issue you with your unique ParentPay account activation details. Once you have received these details, simply log on to the ParentPay website to activate your account.

If you have more than one child at Southwold School, or children at other ParentPay schools, you can create a single account login for all your children.

Using PayPoint

PayPoint can be used to make payments which are recorded by ParentPay and will appear on your payment history.

You will need to notify the school if you wish to use PayPoint facilities. A card will be issued to you to make cash payments for school meals at local PayPoint stores. The first card is free of charge. However, any replacements for lost or damaged cards will be charged at £1.50 each.

Trip and activity information letters will carry a unique barcode that allows you to make cash payments at your local PayPoint store. By making PayPoint payments for school, you can still pay in cash, but there is no need for your child to carry money into school, thus creating completely cashless school payments.
